At this point, it’s hard to deny Sarah Blasko as one of Australia’s most endearing live performers.
As she gradually transitions from the indie clique to the adult contemporary mainstream, the turning point may well have been cemented in her landmark performance at the Sydney Opera House almost a year ago. Blasko faultlessly saunters through an abbreviated greatest hits set before plunging into the tracks of her acclaimed 2012 album, enriched by an equally impeccable string and percussion section. She has never been the most engaging performer between songs, and this set is no different. But in a strange way, that kind of adds to her mystique and magnetism.
